Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Patch Notes

The Battlefield Blog now offers patch notes for the patch for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 that's expected on Wednesday for DICE's military shooter sequel. Here is what to expect of the 2.6 GB(!) update:

  • Removed some memory leaks
  • Fixed crashes when the game attempted to render lots of content (high detail, high FOV or multiple-monitor modes); this should particularly help multi-monitor users
  • Chat window no longer causes lag spikes
  • Chat window reworked opacity & visibility-time is controllable through settings in settings.ini
  • Clantag is remembered when using auto-login
  • Banner URLs can be up to 252 characters in length
  • SecuROM wrapper removed from non-Steam version
  • Minor performance enhancements
  • Reduced rubberbanding on servers with more than 24 active players
  • PrintScreen takes a screenshot, file stored in Documents\BFBC2\Screenshots directory

2.6 GB?!!! WTF.

Because they have said the way the engine is put together that patching is a nightmare and requires a damn near fresh install to apply the patched files. They are fail.
I know that is seriously messed up, I hope they fixed this for BF3. They should look to MMOs on how to do in-place updates.
